After a successful open season, Medallion Pipeline Co. LLC announced plans to move forward with two proposed expansion projects.
A subsidiary of Medallion Midstream LLC, Medallion Pipeline Co. announced the binding open season for its proposed crude oil pipeline extension, the Midkiff Lateral, as well as for the capacity expansion of its existing Wolfcamp Connector pipeline was successful.
Based on the binding capacity bids received from prospective shippers during the open season, which began Nov. 6, Medallion has executed long-term transportation service agreements that will support construction of the projects. The Midkiff Lateral and Wolfcamp Connector Expansion are expected to be placed in service during the first quarter of 2015.
The Midkiff Lateral will extend approximately 40 miles from the new Midkiff station in Upton County, Texas, to the existing Garden City station, and will be capable of transporting approximately 75,000 barrels per day (bpd) of crude oil for delivery. Adjacent to the proposed Midkiff station will be truck unloading facilities that will be owned and operated by Medallion Pipeline’s affiliate, Medallion Crude Oil Logistics, to provide shippers the option to truck crude oil quantities to those facilities.
The Wolfcamp Connector Expansion will increase Medallion’s Wolfcamp Connector pipeline capacity between the Garden City station and Colorado City hub by 30,000 barrels from the current 65,000 bpd to 95,000 bpd.
“The Midkiff Lateral and the Wolfcamp Connector Expansion projects will substantially extend and expand our existing crude oil pipeline systems capacity and geographical scope,” said Medallion CEO Randy Lentz. “The successful close of this open season is a testament to our confidence and the confidence of our customers in the long-term sustainable growth of Midland Basin crude oil production.”Tags: crude oil, Medallion Pipeline Co., Midkiff Lateral, Texas, Wolfcamp Connector Expansion
